Colin Nettelbeck Scholarship

A Scholarship was set up in 2021 in honour of Emeritus Professor Colin Nettelbeck to recognise the central role he played in founding the Institute and his longstanding and invaluable commitment to its public and research activities, including initiating the French Australian Dictionary of Biography.

This biennial grant of AUD $500 (from 2024) is awarded to a Postgraduate or Honours student to assist them with their research and/or to present a paper at the ISFAR colloquium, held every two years. Criteria for the award include the quality of the abstract, the relevance of the paper to the themes of the conference, and the degree of financial support already available to the candidate.

It is expected that the student will submit an article based on their colloquium presentation to The French Australian Review for publication (subject to the usual peer review process). If not already a member of ISFAR, the student will also receive a complimentary annual membership of ISFAR.
